tooltip on a fixed header big problems

25
Hi, Great script but im having problems that are deal breakers when it comes to purchasing this, if the header if fixed the tooltip wont move with scrolling down page (when fixed), also if scrolled down page it no longer sticks to elementid, also if page height is too small for the tooltip height is also goes off the screen vertically. Anyone have any ideas why this is happening or is it a problem with the script??

please see video for example! http://www.screenr.com/zm4H

Would you tell me the page URL or post a testing online? Thanks.

I have taken a look. It seems the tooltip window does not know where to position itself if the target element has a fixed position.
I checked the tooltip.css and found:
div#mcTooltipWrapper {position:absolute;}
I have tried to make it position:fixed either, but no luck. So it is better not making your header menu fixed positioned if you can.

I am also wondering if you can update the options in tooltip.js as:
{ relativeTo: "mouse",
  ...
  calloutPosition: 0.5,
  ...
}
You can try it out (i didn't try).
